WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS PICTURE?
This is a sentimental picture of me in my first 3-weeks at what IBM held annually then called “Becoming One Voice”. And for the next 4.5 years I traveled a great deal working for clients mostly in Financial Services e.g. Citibank, Mutual of Omaha, Amica Insurance, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Maryland, and A&P Supermarkets, epiCenter (cool project), and StateFarm Insurance.

THE TAKEAWAY:
Learning the standards that make a foundation for quality deliverables. One Architect (Peggy Zych) was awesome at mentoring me. Crazy, I still remember my employee badge number, I bleed blue man!
